Bombers out-play Swans

BOISDALE-BRIAGOLONG began the East Gippsland netball season with a 47-38 victory at Stratford on Saturday.

The Bombers led the reigning premier by five goals at three-quarter-time, then finished strongly, winning by nine.

Elsewhere, Lakes Entrance and Orbost-Snowy Rovers drew 41-41 and Wy Yung defeated Lindenow 35-33. With Paynesville not fielding an A grade side this season, Lucknow players will have a belated beginning to their campaign next weekend.

MORWELL won the Gippsland League netball grand final rematch against Traralgon to finish the second round of the 2021 season on Saturday night.

The two rivals clashed under lights at Morwell, making for a great spectacle. Such is the quality of the new netball courts at Morwell, the intermittent rain hardly had an effect on the match.

The Tigers led at every change, and blew their lead out to 10 goals by three-quarter time, going on to win 49-40.
